Queen Elizabeth II Orders Royal Makeunder for Kate Middleton
She’s quite the Royal head-turner, and Kate Middleton has definitely won the hearts of the people of the United Kingdom- except for one.
It turns out Queen Elizabeth II is less-than-pleased with some of the Duchess of Cambridge’s ensembles as she believes Kate has been showing too much leg.
Per a Mail on Sunday report, the Queen recently “issued some dictums as to how Kate should be dressed when she tours Australia in April.”
Essentially, Middleton’s skirts will be longer and she’ll wear tiaras and statement jewelry when she greets the residents of the former English penal colony.
A Palace source added that Elizabeth has asked her own personal stylist Angela Kelly to plan Kate’s wardrobe. “Angela has been asked to start selecting jewels ahead of the trip. This trip will be about Kate appearing more Royal than ever – you can expect to see a lot more tiaras and the Queen will be watching closely.”
And designer David Emanuel noted, “Kate is going to need someone to help her get ready. Even a modern-day Royal needs help with dressing. Kate is going to be scrutinized from head to toe. We take for granted how good she looks but it’s a lot of work.”
“You need to think about the national colors of the country, its flag and emblems and how to reflect that in the clothes you wear. It takes weeks of research and Kate is going to need quality couture for the trip. She will be travelling in a warm climate and she will need quality-cut clothes. She really needs a full-time member of staff to help with her wardrobe.”
“It’s not just the frock, it’s the whole thing – shoes, clutch, accessories. A superstar would take an entire personal entourage to look after them. There’s no room for a fashion faux pas.”
